Thanks for the update..
I believe NashaMasha threw himself upon his sword, to have an excuse not to be around today.



Unlike those others of his ilk who're conspicuously absent from today's festivities ... they know who they are.

Brisbane, Miami, Charleston, Madrid with a final in Doha and the Australian quarterfinal. She's having a great year. I hope she can win Rome and Paris, it'd be a dream.

Agreed.

What I'm constantly amazed about is how so many frustrated Maria stans go on and on about Serena's serve and muse about "...if she didn't have that serve,..." "if it wasn't for her serve,..." and yet they simply don't understand or ignore the value of her RETURN in destroying Maria's Serve. THAT'S why Maria's serve falls apart against Serena.

What I'm getting at is their matches aren't about Serena's serve. They're about MARIA'S.

JA ME KA IS THE GOAT!!!

Serena has served BETTER than this at the French Open before (see her QF with Pierce in 2002).

I would take it further to say it's her form/game, not the court, which gives her an advantage. For example: Rome was Serena's best clay court tournament until Charleston 2008 - her records on green clay weren't that great. The reason for that wasn't so much how the clay suited her game as much as how she was playing at certain events.

But keep trying to assume things about people since you clearly have nothing worth of note to say after looking like an idiot and jumping to conclusions about my intentions
Ease up on the paranoia deary, it's bad for one's mental health.

What did NashaMasha do to get banned?

Quote:
19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

Ain't it something?! Serena most of the time has no trouble returning Maria's serve. THAT'S what puts pressure on Maria...she can get away with all those df's against Ivanovic, but against Serena..no can't do.

The irony I could say the same about Serena vs Maria. I'm this close to think that Serena will really die on court the day she loses to Maria but that's not gonna happen anytime soon, is it ?

not to mention that she started playing when she was 1 set down but whatever.
Does that matter? She won all her Stuttgart matches in 3 sets, so why should playing better 1 set down be a problem?

Well, considering Maria's answer I think it does. Maria can't afford to be that slow against Serena even if Serena on her side was awesome but it was expected.
